USA Cheer “Return to Cheer and STUNT” Guidelines

At Varsity Spirit, the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, employees, families and friends is our top priority. As various parts of the country open up and begin to resume public activities, it is important to follow the guidelines provided by your local and state government and health departments regarding activities that are permitted for your community in addition to any specific requirements from your direct association (college conference and divisions, school district and/or state high school athletics/activities associations, US All Star Federation, governing youth rec association, etc.).
